Anya Marina: What It’s Like To Get That Call

Anya Marina tells Chop Shop what it’s like to realize you’re being considered for and then getting on the New Moon soundtrack. Anya’s   ‘Satellite Heart.’ debuted earlier this week exclusively through MySpace, and you can listen to it at It’s currently available on ITunes when you preorder the soundtrack.

…I heard all sorts of my favorite bands were being considered for the soundtrack (Thom Yorke, Death Cab, Grizzly Bear, etc). In fact, on the day of my own private screening, as I walked in, The Killers were making their way out.




Suffice it to say, the movie was great and I got really inspired to adapt a new song I’d been working on to suit Bella and Edward and their whole drama. I got together with my friend, producer [and mixer on Slow & Steady…] Ken Andrews, and we recorded a pretty mean version of a new song called “Satellite Heart.””
